if instead of buying a water table or kiddie pool, you fill up a plastic storage bin with water and dish soap and let your two year old play in it to make the heat a little more tolerable.

It has been Texas hot here recently.  This afternoon the heat index was 105.  That’s right.  ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE.  I really thought that one of the perks of moving to Connecticut was the cooler weather, but apparently I was incorrect.  Unfortunately, Jacob just doesn’t understand “It’s too hot to go outside” so we decided to make our own water fun.  Lucky for you, you get to enjoy the pictures from the comfort of your air-conditioned home.  Hope all three of our readers are staying cool in this heat wave!

Broccoli!

 

At dinner last night Lilian was staring so intently at my broccoli that I put a piece right in front of her chubby little fist. She immediately grabbed it, pulled it to her mouth and started sucking on it.  Her initial response was different than her brother’s.  While broccoli is one of his favorite vegetables now, he definitely didn’t like it the first handful of times we introduced it!

Lilian won’t actually start solids for a few more months, but like her big brother she will skip rice cereal and purées and go straight to table foods that she can feed herself.

Speaking of her brother, here is a picture I snapped of him yesterday.

Such a big boy!

Last night as we were reading bedtime stories, Jacob insisted on showing Lilian every page of ‘Pat the Bunny’ after Keith read it to him. Here he is helping Lilian look in the mirror. I love watching how sweet he is with his baby sister!

On Saturday we took a trip out to the lake.  I didn’t take the camera down to the dock but we did snap a few pictures while we were inside.
